Discovering Judaism Class

Sunday, October 31, 2021 25 Cheshvan 5782

10:00 AM - 11:30 AM


An engaging multi-session course for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of Jewish life. Discover what could be meaningful to you in liberal Judaism.

Join us for a 21 session course presenting an overview of Judaism, the faith, and the civilization of the Jewish People. 

Judaism is both ancient and modern, a meshing of ideas and action. Using both sacred and secondary sources, you will be exposed to the breadth of Jewish thought, belief & practice.

Discovering Judaism is ideal for non-Jews considering conversion to Judaism, non-Jews engaged or married to Jews wishing to learn more about Jewish culture, and Jews looking to amplify what they learned about Judaism as children. We’ll explore the Life Cycle (events and rituals), the Holidays, Jewish History, Jewish Prayer, Torah, Talmud and Sacred Texts, Israel, Ethics, and much more.
